| | Re: Should I Buy The Bowdabra?
I used to be a "template" girl (no wonder with an engineer blood in my veins) and I used loads of templates, even ones I found out.
Now I only use my cardboard template for pinwheels and make everything else freehanded.
You will find lots of different opinions but it's always a personal preference.
I was tempted to buy different templates just did not want to invest into it as I had so many other things to buy.
My basic advice is: research and practice. There are loads of tutorials and also youtube videos.
